Need something you can whip up for guests in a hurry? At our house we’ve been making popcorn using Braggadocio Organic Popcorn (grown in Missouri) and seasoning it with Billy Goat All Purpose Seasoning. It is so easy to make and the spice from the folks behind Billy Goat Chips is a spunky addition. They also have the Kicker addition if you want a little heat. Another tip is to pop the popcorn in coconut oil. It’s light and can handle high temperature cooking.

TURKEY TIME- Orders due by Nov. 21!
It is time for Thanksgiving turkey pre-orders. This year we are doing things a little differently. Please read the information carefully. And, this year you can pre-order your turkey on-line or in the store.
Buttonwood Farm Turkeys, California, MO
Type of Turkey: Broad Breasted White Turkeys that are currently ranging outside at Buttonwood Farms. The birds are raised on pasture and are fed a non-medicated, natural feed and forage.
Size options: 17-19lbs or 22-24lbs
When you sign up, you will need to choose either 17-19 lb or 22-24lb. We cannot guarantee that size range absolutely, but will do our best to accommodate your choice.
(Note about turkey size: These turkeys are raised outside with access to forage and feed. They are sold fresh so it is more difficult to control the exact weight of the birds since the date of processing is preset. It makes Thanksgiving that much more exciting. )
Deposit: $10 + tax deposit required to reserve your turkey.
Pick-up times: Pick up will be Tuesday, Nov. 25th. Time is TBD, but customers will be alerted as to pick up times.
If a whole turkey is too much, we have been able to add a sign up for fresh turkey breasts from Buttonwood Farms. Limited number.
Here’s the info:
Size: Single breast 3-4lbs, double breast 6-8lbs
It is very rare that we promote a product from far, far, away. But this year we thought it would be fun to showcase a little Italian truffle decadence.
We are accepting pre-orders for the Alba (white) truffle from Italy. This culinary gold is priced at $225.00 per ounce. We are procuring it through one of our local farmers. Once it arrives, be prepared to use it right away. Impromptu truffle party? We will place the order once we have enough pre-orders to order by the pound. Your card will not be charged until we have enough orders. You will be notified when the order is placed.

From the founder, Susan Spitz:
Jeni’s Ice Cream, Columbus OH, is delicious, and she has many fans around the country. Rumor has it there will soon be a Jeni’s shop in St. Louis. When we were getting started last February I was told, “if you can make ice cream as good as Jeni’s, you’ll be golden!” Turns out we have a lot of similar ideas. As we began formulating our flavors we discovered that she had many similar flavors in her recipe book, including a delicious “Creme sans lait” dairy free version that I have adapted.
So we are going to put it to the test. And you get to be our judges! Come to Local Harvest Cafe on Wednesday evening, November 19th, and let us know which you prefer. Either way, a delicious time will be had by all!
We’ll also be introducing some new Holiday flavors which will be available for purchase (or order for later pickup) that night at a reduced cost.
